For me the order is as follows:
17-55 f/2.8 – an outstanding general purpous lens.
100mm macro – too sharp for a portrait lens unless it’s a bug, but I have been using this for a lot of other things lately. My latest was my nieces college graduation.
10-22 – Just a fun lens.
70-300 IS – I have been rediscovering this lens. It got put away for a while as the 100-400 took over the long duties, but dang, this lens is every bit as sharp as the 100-400 and the IS is far better.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

My vote goes to the EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro but the 10-22 comes in a very close second.

Canon EF 100mm f/2. Great portrait lens and very affordable (especially used).

Sigma 30 and tamron 90. I got a great deal on the tammy and have been very very happy with it. The sigma right now is rarely off my camera for day to day stuff, which says it all for me.

No, just #2, I now realize, the TS-E 24. I got a little carried away I guess.

Kind regards, Wim

That is easy. For me it's the EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro.

This lens is L-sharp, very versatile and has excellent build quality. And using the focus range limiter switch, the AF speed is not bad at all for a macro lens.

I've had more fun with this lens than most others. We go for lots of walks when the flowers are blooming. It's definately on my list of lenses I'll never sell.


It is for me too. I can take hand-held pictures easily and they are super sharp. It is very easy to focus manually too. I am learning to take portraits with it as well and love the results.

85mm f/1.8 because my only other lens is 18-55 ... the USM alone makes it "better' :)
